      I was watching MSNBC yesterday. They were talking to a woman who worked at that Carrier plant trump promised to save and shocking to no one (who was paying attention), many employees are losing their jobs. She said she voted for him because she thought he would save her and he didn’t. Then the interviewer asked her what she was going to do now. She said-I can tell you, I’m not going to go for unemployment, no one has to take care of me! You can imagine what I was screaming at the television.

      • Christopher Story

        So, if her house burns down she won’t make an insurance claim since “no one has to take care of [her]”? Her employer was paying for her unemployment insurance, as required by law.

        Yup, as if we needed it, but yet more proof that one has to be staggeringly stupid to STILL support turmp.

    Heading off to a gubernatorial forum (the problem with living in a deeply blue state is an abundance of good choices!) on this note:

    https://twitter.com/RevDrBarber/status/952206109271580672

    • MynameisBlarney

      Rev. Barber, you are awesome.

      • Lefty Wright

        It’s good to see a web site that appreciates a good man. A few weeks ago I commented here about an article in AlterNet written by Barber. Most of the comments there attacked him, saying they did not need any preachers telling them what was moral. Obviously, they never bothered to read the article or do any research on Barber. If they did, they would know he opens his campaigns to anyone believing in justice, equality, fairness, and respect and help for the less fortunate. Christian, Muslim, athiest, black, white, brown, young and old. I hate some of the comments on that site. Many of them have their heads up their asses just as far as the Tea Party clique. And are just as intolerant of anyone not in lock step with them.

        • MynameisBlarney

          Yup.
          I’m an atheist and even I can see he’s walking the walk. He actually lives by tenets of his faith.

        • artem1s

          don’t kid yourself, the Brogressive wing of the left hate Rev Barber because he is a true populist who turned the tide in a deeply red state and put NC back on the map for the Democratic Party. And he did it without attacking women and minorities and the LGBT community. If fact he did it by demanding respect and support for all those who are repressed. He is the true face of the moral movement and is doing it while blah.

    • Christopher Story

      There’s a man who deserves to be called “Christian,” for the good reasons.

      • MynameisBlarney

        Yup.

    • Villago Delenda Est

      Tweety has been a raging douchebag (“Shoulders you can land a 737 on!”) for quite some time. This is just further evidence to support my proposal that he be shipped to the Arctic Ocean to serve as emergency rations for starving polar bears.

        I actually heard him realize he had interrupted a guest last week. I still think “Let Me Finish” is the least self-aware segment name in all of television.

  • MynameisBlarney
    • artem1s

      relationship? jeebus call it what it is. which BTW was the same ‘relationship’ he has with wife #3. the only way anyone would have a ‘relationship’ with that pig is if there was a pay check at the end of it. Melania better get out now while there is still anything left. Unless she’s counting on him kicking and making millions on the tell all book.

      • Courser_Resistance

        Naw, she’s a Putin plant and she’s now reconsidering her career choices.

        • artem1s

          could be, but I’m betting Putin isn’t paying out either if Mueller keeps outing the KGB efforts to take the US from inside the WH. She’s supposed to be controlling him, and she’s failing bigly

        • Celtic_Gnome

          I’m beginning to think that myself. Whatever sort of prenup she signed, there should be something in there for her if Donnie got caught cheating, and she’s had ample evidence to trip that clause.

        Hell, make it a double-double.

  • Blackest Noobs

    maybe it’s just me but this whole hush money to the porn star thingy with Trump…yeah im kinda laughing at porn star’s letter stating no hush money no hush money you’re the hush money…cuz in my head porn stars are basically prostitutes….like honestly we’re gonna take the word of a whore?

    • House0fTheBlueLights

      Yes, we are. Because this person is a sex worker, not someone to spit on because you don’t approve of the way they make their living.

      • Blackest Noobs

        yeah but porn stars don’t really seem to most reliable when it comes to the truth.

        • MynameisBlarney

          And you base this on what, exactly?

          • Blackest Noobs

            because porn has always been a seedy business. the idea to think it’s a legit business is pretty naive.

            just because porn has become main stream, doesn’t somehow clean it up.

          • James

            There are seedy people in every business: Let me introduce you to plumbers, used car sales, and Congress.

            “Guilt by association” doesn’t really fly. Moreover, Ms. Daniels now is a producer as well . . . I would imagine she treats her employees well, since she’s worked on both sides of the camera.

          • MynameisBlarney

            That sounds like something a conservative would say.
            Just sayin…

          • Blackest Noobs

            unfortunately none of those family values conservatives are saying shit about it.

          • MynameisBlarney

            Nope.
            They sure as hell ain’t.

          • James

            Which apparently makes it somehow Ms. Daniels’s fault.

          • Blackest Noobs

            my gut is not to believe her. but i guess we’ll see if they follow the money….if money was exchanged, there should be problems for ms. Daniels and mr. Trump.

            regardless, a president shouldn’t be associated with a porn star, it’s not very presidential.

          • Everrett Fanuelli

            Why would there be problems for Ms. Daniels? Maybe it’s inappropriate for the president, but it shouldn’t make adult film stars pariahs. You really should read up more on this stuff.

          • Blackest Noobs

            BECAUSE IT MEANS SHE FUCKING LIED

          • James

            “Officer, I was raped five years ago and the rapist threw some money at me, but I didn’t come forward until today.”

            You’re a liar?

            Woman is paid and steps forward when a wealthy playboy runs for office and lies about his businesses, contractors, &c. and she shouldn’t step forward.

            Sounds like all those attacking Roy Moore’s accusers. Muh stars, they lied!

            If she in fact lied, that will come out in due course. Four different media outlets are now reporting on it, including Rupert Murdoch’s Wall Street Journal. How many do you need? Twenty? One hundred?

          • Blackest Noobs

            you’re fucking ridiculous. she wasn’t raped. she was paid to have sex.
            which is fine if the parties agreed to it.

            however these are not the actions of a fucking president.

            shit some texas lawmaker stepped down for sending penis pics…that weener guy lost his office because of penis pics….and they didn’t pay for sex….allegedly….but whatever….

          • James

            Suppose he’d paid for sex in Nevada, where in certain places it is legal?

            Trump appeared in porn films and in Playboy magazine, both legal businesses.

            The moral outrage at Ms. Daniels here is so thick its like overcooked oatmeal.

          • Everrett Fanuelli

            I didn’t know Stormy Daniels has been under oath all this time.

          • James

            Anthony Weiner allegedly sent them across state lines to a minor. Don’t know about the Texas legislator to whom you refer.

          • Blackest Noobs

            you don’t know LOTS of things.

            i believe porn star is lying. also her lie is right there with Trump’s likely lie.

            am i 100% certain, NO….but it really doesn’t look good given both parties involvement.

            but hey you keep believing Trump didn’t pay her hush money, you know, cuz, he would never ever do such a thing.

            “The report says Cohen emailed a two-paragraph statement addressed “TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN” and signed “Stormy Daniels” that denied any engagement in a “sexual and/or romantic affair” with Trump.

            “Rumors that I have received hush money from Donald Trump are completely false,” the statement said.”

          • James

            I’m pretty sure I don’t know lots of things. High school doesn’t teach everything, and I don’t live in Texas. Rather than insulting me, you could have informed me about said Texas legislator about who I admitted I didn’t know.

            I think I’ll bow out now. I have both a city council meeting to prepare for and a book to edit today.

          • puredog

            Well, I kind of came away from the story with the impression that she said both “I was paid $130K to shut up about consensual sex with DJT, which happened” and “I was not paid $130K to shut up about consensual sex with DJT, which didn’t happen.” If that’s so, then clearly she did lie, but which statement is a lie would still be open to question. (I have my opinion, but I base that more on Trumpie’s and Cohen’s characters than hers.)

          • Daniel

            I think the way to work it out is to ask one of her which one the other would say is telling the truth.

          • James

            “If there was money exchanged?” Like when rape victims are threatened into silence? Why believe any of the accusers of Donald Trump except this accuser, even if the money angle is true?

            Her choice of work is legal. I don’t care to see the Comstock Laws come back because someone disapproves of her choice of work.

          • Blackest Noobs

            oook porn/erotic lover

          • MynameisBlarney

            Really?

          • Daniel

            It’s easier than dealing with the criticism, I guess.

          • Everrett Fanuelli

            Porn WAS a seedy business when it came into the fore back in the 70s. It’s pretty legitimate now and the adult film industry rakes in as much or even more money than mainstream studios.

          • Blackest Noobs

            ooooh ok…you keep believing that.

          • Everrett Fanuelli

            I don’t have to believe that. I’ve read a lot about porn and it’s history. Plus, adult films is one of the very few industries where women make more money than men.

          • James

            While we’re at it, let’s cover up the statue of justice in the DOJ . . . oh wait, that was John Ashcroft. Or maybe all those Raphael paintings, or the Pieta in the Vatican.

            Or maybe tell women and men how they “should” behave. While we’re at it, tell those of use who write or edit erotic Romances that our work should be “scrutinized” for being seedy. Progress!

          • Blackest Noobs

            again, whatever….

          • bbayliss

            It’s a billion dollar business.
            Montreal Is North America’s Best City for the Porn Industry – Thrillist
            https://www.thrillist.com/sex-dating/montreal/montreal-porn-industry
            Oct 21, 2016 – MindGeek is the Goliath of the porn industry in Montreal, wielding valuable assets like PornHub, a bevy of tube sites, as well as several studios, including Brazzers, which was started by two Concordia students. While content management and website development might not exactly be the glamorous piece ..

          • Celtic_Gnome

            We can thank porn for every innovation in online activity we have today. They were the first ones to figure out how to make money with the internet, and this (non) comment section you’re using to berate them would be radically different today if porn hadn’t ventured into this arena.

          • Everrett Fanuelli

            In addition, one of those “seedy” businessmen, Larry Flynt, has been one of the biggest heroes of protecting our 1st amendment right of freedom of expression.

          • James

            And someone shot him for it, presumably because that person was “morally outraged” at the content of Mr. Flynt’s magazines.

          • MynameisBlarney

            Also too, so has organized religion.

          • Blackest Noobs

            worse than the porn industry

          • Daniel

            What makes it an illegitimate business?

          • MynameisBlarney

            Because he doesn’t approve of it I guess.

          • bbayliss
          • SeekingIndictmentBarbie

            It sounds like you’re saying that if a business is “seedy,” that anyone who is employed by that business should be suspected of being a liar.

          • James

          So because they work in an industry that’s, in your opinion, not quite as respectable as other careers you just want to make the blanket statement that they’re unreliable? You might want to read some more. The good majority of adult film actors are pretty average folk.

        And neither should be (and isn’t in parts of Nevada). Selling your body’s labour for weekly bruises and contusions with the NFL is perfectly fine, or humping cartloads of lumber or brick for construction, but this “one thing” on selling yourself is illegal.

        Whereas regulating and taxing such a thing (prostitution) makes it safer for both parties involved. Prohibition -never- works. (See also alcohol and drugs.)

        • The Militant Homosexual Agenda

      “It’s sort of about porn, but it’s about a lot of other things. It’s sad, funny, moving and totally unlike some other nonfiction stories about porn – because it isn’t judgmental or salacious. It’s human and sweet and strange and lovely. It’s a mystery story, an adventure. It’s also, I think, a new way of telling a story. This season follows a ..”

      • Blackest Noobs

        don’t fucking care, but hey you dumbfucks agree with Trump and the porn star, and i won’t gloat either when it’s proven she was paid hush money.

        • James

          And if she was paid hush money to keep quiet during Donald Trump’s campaign? That exonerates Donald Trump how?

          • Blackest Noobs

            it doesn’t. obviously missing the point. none of this exonerates Trump. I am saying Ms. Daniels’s letter 1/10/18 is BULLSHIT.
            you all are all like ooooh we believe her, and i am saying nope, not buying it.

            something is definitely rotten in denmark with this lady and the buffoon.

            but then again white people get AWAY with all sorts of ridiculous shit, saying well, it was legit for us to do this or that. imagine if Trump was an Arab…they would be crucifying him before we got all the facts.

            but rich white does this, allegedly, and you fuckers are defending the porn star, which is defending him.

          • James

            I’m defending the reporting of the Wall Street Journal and other outlets, not either person involved in this story.

            I am defending her over the fact conservatives blew up her campaign manager’s car when she ran for the Senate.

            As for white people getting away with things, that is a problem which I would like to see rectified. But I’m only one little ol’ white guy in the middle of nowhere who has exactly one vote. All I can do is call out injustice around me when I see or hear it.

          • James

            You on the other hand have condemned her for the industry she works in, and that entire industry.

        • bbayliss

          You’re missing the point. I think you’ll like the podcast if you listen to it.
          I used to believe the same things you do about the porn industry, listening to Jon was a real education for me.
          I had no idea that southern california is no longer the center. I didn’t know that the same company owns all the biggest porn sites, and that they’re located in Montreal. I didn’t know anything, now I know a little more than I did.
          I have no doubt that trump paid hush money, which makes me wonder who else is blackmailing him, and what they have on him.

    • The Militant Homosexual Agenda

      A porn star has no credibility because of what she does for a living? Last I heard Joseph Mengele had a doctorate in medicine.

      • Daniel

        And he was played by Gregory Peck. Are you going to doubt the word of a man who was portrayed by Atticus Finch?

    • James

      Why not take the word of the Wall Street Journal and other news outlets? Is that the “whore” to which you refer?

      • Blackest Noobs

        you ARE siding with a lady who says there was no hush money and/or she had no sexual relations with Donald Trump. Donald Trump via his lawyer is saying the same thing.

        The Wall Street Journal is saying different.

        but hey, because you’re such a fan of porn/erotica, you believe in Ms. Daniels. I don’t believe her.
        And am i being biased in my opinion because of her occupation, sure. but unlike you, i wouldn’t totally side with her just because she said so.

        too many factors make it unlikely either party, Daniels or Trump, are on the up and up when it comes to the truth. and regardless of any of that, regardless of how you feel about the porn industry, this is not the kind of relationship for a President….WE EXPECT BETTER, WE SHOULD DEMAND BETTER.

        • James

          Why is a legal relationship not “better” for office? Damn, my overwhelming Republican town elected me twice despite knowing I edit racy Romance novels – the big issue was I am an atheist and A LIE-BRUL DEMON-CRAT.

          Ms. Daniels is not in office, and you’re right, we should demand better of the President of the USA (that he not pay hush money to keep his campaign afloat). I’m guessing here that the Wall Street Journal wouldn’t be printing this unless they had evidence to back their assertion.

    • Pax Americana Per Ars Smith

      You know the legal difference between a prostitute and a porn star? A camera.

    • FlownΩver

      It’s undisputed that her career is almost exclusively one of having sex for money. The assertion here is that she had sex with Donald Trump, and that she did so for money and/or accepted money not to acknowledge having had sex with him.

      The claimed evidence against this assertion is (1) an unsworn statement of Donald Trump’s private lawyer and (2) a purported unsworn written denial by the woman who allegedly accepted money not to admit the assertion, signed in her porn name and provided by Donald Trump’s private lawyer.

      We can safely conclude, at least, the following:

      • Her career doesn’t necessarily mean she’s uniformly dishonest, but it certainly doesn’t make her purported denial particularly credible.

      • Robert Mueller should add Ken Starr to his team.

      You’re welcome.

    Anyways, Trump’s a racist. We should probably keep talking about that so the DOJ can do their jobs before Trump notices.

    • shivaskeeper

      I take issue with the last line. There is no Clinton/Uranium One story to supersede. The only place that is a story is in the right wing fever swamps and nothing gets in the way of Clinton hate. Outside the fever swamp, that story does not actually exist because it’s not a story.

      • Jenny

        We know that. But it was unfortunately in the news.

        People wonder about the Obama voters who voted for Trump. Those people are the ones barely paying attention, and vote for whoever has the best press. Anything potentially damning in the tv news is true to them.

        • shivaskeeper

          That is a big part of the problem. The RWNJ fever swamps have been getting bigger in the sense that far to many of their elected officials and spokespeople are straight from the swamp.

          When it spills over into the actual media, usually under the guise of trying to look unbiased, it lends credence to shit that should rightly be laughed at as the CT it is.

      While there appears to be connections between Flynn and Copson, and an effort by a Russian consortium to build nuclear power plants in the Middle East, the other connections are quite tenuous. Copson’s bid didn’t get the AL nuclear facilities, and his remarks about the senators are similar to one’s made by the eventual winning bidder, the usual hopeful buttering up that anyone courting politicians would engage in.

      As for the DOJ indictments, this is a continuation of a the same kickback case that wingnuts try to tie to the Uranium One deal, as the parent company of both U1 and TENEX is Rosatom. Reading the indictment it looks like Mikerin was actually fleecing Rosatom by allowing the bribes paid to him to be recuperated by rolling them into invoices paid by TENEX.

      Rosatom is the Russian state nuclear power and technology monopoly, it’s going to be involved in everything concerning nuclear power and uranium and Russia. Using it to connect Flynn to the TENEX kickback scheme, is like using it to connect state department approval of U1 to the same scheme.

      I’ve no doubt that Rosatom is as shady as any other Russian state run or state dependent business, and that international energy deals are rife with kickbacks and corruption, but that doesn’t mean they are all part of some unified web of conspiracy.

      • Jenny

        The government is protecting russian interests by prosecuting americans?!?!?! Brb speculating wildly!

        Seriously though, we have a russian agent in the white house. We need to be aware of any and all Russian fuckery and whatever ties they may have to Trump’s people. It may not be a conspiracy, but technology has made it possible for the webs of influences to run very close to each other.

        I haven’t listened to the podcast- but he indicated that the US had become “ungovernable” over the last 25 years.
        People used to say that about California- then we changed the laws to get rid of gerrymandering, and also the 2/3 vote of the legislature to approve a budget. Republicans were consigned to the back bench, and the state became governable very quickly.
        It’s possible that some time over the next 20 years or so Republicans will get that constitutional convention they’ve been calling for- and they’ll regret it.

        Also, too, Trump is so excellently healthy (all positives) and passed his physical with such flying semaphores, that Rear Admiral Ronnie [sic] Jackson sent out a message to that effect.

        Indeed, the Admiral was so excited that, as Rachel Maddow pointed out, he forgot how to spell his own name and phrased it in the same ignoramus terms that you might expect from, well, Trump himself.

          • Daniel

            Like Roy Moore is not “Judge Roy Moore”, so Clarke is no longer a sheriff. He doesn’t do the job and therefore doesn’t get the title.
            (This is not directed at you, by the way, it’s just a little minor rant.)

            It’s weird to me how US culture addresses people by their job titles so often, especially when those people no longer do those jobs, and even more so because those titles often bestow authority on those people. It’s odd when I read or hear US media refer to “Prime Minister May” or similar- we don’t call her that. We just use her name. In the case of Clarke and Moore and Child Sexual Assault Defender Mike Huckabee and others, using their former titles bestows a respect on them they lost through their behaviour in those roles. It plays to their vanity and they do not deserve that- not least because their vanity is what led them to disgrace themselves in the first place.

          • TJ Barke

            Even if he is no longer a cop, he is still an authoritarian thug.

    • It’s shocking, SHOCKING, to me that a woman who literally gets paid to have sex would accept money to have sex with that gross, old man.

      Sex or not is not the issue. I don;t really care if he cheats on Melania or if he does this with her consent also, too.

      It’s not going to sway the Evangelical base either way. They attack Hillary for staying with Bill, but would attack her for leaving too. Their family values allow their own to cheat, get divorced, remarry, or whatever else they condemn in others. The only consistency they have is they are good and everyone else is bad, no matter what.

      The money. The money is the problem. Even if it’s not to keep her quiet about sex, it’s for something. Either sex or not, no one just pays another person 130K for no reason. If it’s legit, fine. If not, probably not so fine.

Is it enough to “look white,” or do we all need to do the ancestry DNA kits and make sure 100% of our ancestors came from Europe? That reminds me, is only Northern Europe white, Southern Europeans are rather swarthy, but then again, you’ve got blue-eyed blonde Italians, so…it’s so confusing! What about phrenology?

But not “Aryan,” so therefore swarthy. Which is a stupid corruption of the “Indo-Aryan” categorization anyway; after all, Iran means “Aryan” and even Hitler thought of them as such.

      He’s like a smart person, but he is in fact, not actually, a smart person.

    • miss_grundy

      He thinks he’s a Valley Girl?

    • suziq

      He is like a smart person in that he is (not 100% positive) an actual person.

    • SisterArtemis

      found on the book of face, not sure where the quote comes from, but seems sorta relevant:

      “In a new book, D’Arcy lays out four different flavors of modern “like”
      –There’s the quotative use, as in “I was like, ‘No way!’”
      –There’s the approximative use, as in “It’s like thirty degrees below out there.”
      –There’s the discourse marker, used to connect clauses as a kind of discursive glue, as in “…like, you know what I’m saying?”
      –And finally there’s the discourse particle, which can get stuck into the middle of a clause. That last one is what Trump is doing when he inserts “like” before “really smart” or “a really smart person.”

    The dreadful cold weather here in La Floriduh has not only sent my electric bill into the stratosphere (and a bill to the AC/Heat guy), but the damn squirrels have moved into the attic over a section of the house. They are partying, rampaging around, and no doubt leaving a vile mess. Any suggestions? I think we found the hole in the soffit, which we can plug, but don'[t want to do it while they are inside.
    We already scratched off flame throwers, and any kind of poison, so what now?

    • msanthropesmr

      Ask them politely to leave?
      Get a bobcat and stuff it in the attic?
      Provide some little beds?
      Give them a gaming table?

      • eyelashviper

        Maybe a day pass to DisneyWorld, the one with the gators lurking…

    • shivaskeeper

      Poison mean you have dead rotting squirrels in the gable space. Live traps maybe?

      • eyelashviper

        We have some hav-a-heart traps, so if I can convince my husband to climb up into that dark spidery place, it could work.

        • shivaskeeper

          I would probably go that route.

          Being a husband myself, the best approach would be to ask him to put out the traps now because it will be easier than looking for the dead squirrels later. That’s what would work for me.

          • eyelashviper

            Can I tell him you said so?
            He can be stubborn.

          • shivaskeeper

            Of course you can tell him I said that.

          • Courser_Resistance

            Seriously. I can’t imagine how bad a dead squirrel would stink. I once had a freaking little field mouse die in my townhouse and I couldn’t sit on the couch for a week because of the smell. It must have died inside the couch because man, I looked for it and didn’t find it until I moved. It must have fallen out at some point cuz i moved the couch at the time…

          • NellCote71

            I once had one of those old-fashioned stove units with a metal side drawer to store pots and pans. An awful smell in the kitchen emanated from the stove area. I decided to take the stove apart to see what was going on. I pulled the drawer all the way out, and sure enough, his little gray mouse body was draped over the back panel. I must have closed the drawer at an inopportune point in his life.

      There are “Have-a-heart” live traps for squirrels. I would trap ’em, and then plug the hole immediately (even if your drive miles & miles away to let the varmints out of the trap, they’ll jump from tree to tree, & find their way back).

      • eyelashviper

        We have a zillion squirrels around, so we would just release them. We have a variety of those traps, used for raccoons and other critters.
        Was also considering playing very loud Rap music with a thumping bass…

    • nightmoth

      We’ve used a Have-a Heart trap, but it didn’t make a dent in the population. We have a huge population, though, living in the woods as we do and with our house being a log house: a personal squirrel invitation, as it were. Over the years, I’ve gone from futilely screaming at them to resigning myself and listening to all the different vocalizations they make. I can tell when they’re fighting and when they’re fucking. When things get too loud for too long, the husband gets out his rifle and we have squirrel stew.

      • Courser_Resistance

        There’s a really cool song I hear from time to time and one verse about singer’s place being a squirrel sanctuary.

    • SayItWithWookies

      I heard a story a while back where someone had a raccoon family regularly visiting their attic — they put up a strobe light and flipped it on when the raccoons dropped in and they took off and after a few more attempts never came back. That might be worth a try.

      • Courser_Resistance

        LOL! Give the little fuckers seizures.. that’ll teach ’em.

    • Mike

      You gotta trap em and quick…they’re like rats, with a short gestation period (6wks)
      Look for more than one hole, they’re sneaky little buggers that can squeeze through an opening just larger than their head. We had up in the main roof a couple years ago. I had an easy access and was able to trap 3 of em in 2 days…they also leave when the weather gets warm again…Florida sun can heat the crawl space up to 150 degrees on a hot day.
      Good luck

    • goCatgo

      Give them the “Bootstraps” , the “World is a Hard Place” and the “WTF are You Gonna do when I’m Gone” talks, and if they don’t go to college or learn a trade/skill, make ’em get a job and pay rent.

    • bbayliss

      Plug the hole with Concrete, they’ll chew through anything else.
      they can chew through electrical wires and cause a fire, but don’t worry.
      OK maybe you should worry a little, but you need to get rid of them, they can be terribly destructive.

    • Courser_Resistance

      I’m honestly not sure how you encourage them to leave. Some critters don’t like moth balls… maybe buy some of those and spread them around the attic? Not sure if it works on squirrels (I just like the smell, reminds me of grandma’s house).

      Flamethrower? If you burned the house down at least you woudn’t have squirrels.

      Also too: Help! I have squirrels!

    • Here in the chilly north where such events are standard, you call the animal removal expert who installs one-way doors – they can go out but they can’t go back in. And then, of course, you give them ridiculous amount of money.

      Are live traps a possibility? Bait them with peanuts or something. Then it’s either into a bucket of water or a 10 minute drive in the country, depending on your level of ability to deal with killing things. If it’s a drive in the country you will need to go quite a way or THEY’LL BE BACK.

    Old Trump quote on coal miners being too stupid or lazy to better themselves (Hi, WV voters). Substitute shithole for mines and a motivated immigrant with “it” knocking at our border would seem to comport to Donald’s vision of a motivated/creative human.
    “I like the challenge and tell the story of the coal miner’s son. The coal miner gets black-lung disease, his son gets it, then his son. If I had been the son of a coal miner, I would have left the damn mines shitholes. But most people don’t have the imagination — or whatever — to leave their mine shitholes. They don’t have ‘it’.”

    The news totally exhausting…I can’t be the only one who feels like that.
